6 people, 6 secrets, 6 different backgrounds. They’d never have met if not for their connection to the Metropolis Storage Warehouse in Cambridge, MA. When someone falls down an elevator shaft at the facility, each becomes caught up. Was it an accident? A murder attempt? Suicide? Taut, emotional, Metropolis is impossible to put down or to forget.
